Presenter: Dr. Eleonoor van Gerven (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Time: Thursday, Feb. 3 | 10am-1pm ET
Instructional time: 3 hours
Internationally, there have been shifts in our understanding of the importance of meeting the needs of gifted learners. These shifts call on the knowledge and skills of specialists in gifted education. This has consequences for the way we educate these specialists. Basis for their teacher education should be a competency profile of specialists in gifted education with interplaying with competencies usually associated with general education. In this session, a competency matrix for specialists in gifted education that reflects this development will be presented. The study that underpins the matrix includes stakeholders' understandings of the competencies of specialists in gifted education.
